LaCie has announced two new storage solutions for creative professionals and prosumers, LaCie 1big Dock SSD Pro and LaCie 1big Dock that allow professionals to optimize and simplify their workflow in the studio with a complete storage solution for desktop computers.
LaCie 1big Dock SSD Pro is ideal for editing content with large amounts of 6K and 8K data, uncompressed super slow motion video and VFX content. This solution relies on the FireCuda NVMe SSD and the Thunderbolt 3 interface, to offer stunning read speeds of up to 2800 MB / s. Workflow is also simplified thanks to two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a docking station that includes an integrated USB 3.0 port, cinema memory card slots (CFast 2.0, CFexpress and SD) and a DisplayPort 1.4 output connection. It is the ideal peripheral for most professional cinema cameras, including leading brands such as ARRI, Blackmagic, RED and Canon.
Thanks to the same features of the 1big Dock SSD Pro and the large capacity of a 4TB, 8TB or 16TB hard drive, the new LaCie 1big Dock system also allows the direct acquisition of content from SD cards, CompactFlash cards and USB devices. It simplifies the flow in 4K videomaker studios, acting as a hub for all peripherals and connects to the workstation with a single cable, eliminating the need for additional adapters.
The 1big Dock SSD Pro and 1big Dock solutions can provide up to 45 W of power to Laptops or 30 W when connected with compatible devices. LaCie’s new innovative Power Pass-Through function offers even more power for notebooks, in fact, by connecting the USB-C power cable to the 1big Dock system, the laptop can receive up to 70 W. This also frees up a invaluable USB-C port on the computer.
With a standard 5-year limited warranty with Rescue data recovery services and 1 month subscription to the free Adobe Creative Cloud All-Apps plan, (a $52.99 value), the LaCie 1big Dock SSD Pro will retail for $1,349 (2 TB) and $2,599 (4 TB) and the LaCie 1big Dock for $369 (4 TB), $469 (8 TB), and $679 (16 TB).
